Senior BJP MP and former union minister Subramanian Swamy today dropped a bombshell by predicting an incredibly dismal performance for his party in this ongoing Lok Sabha polls. He said that his party may not be able to cross 180 seats.
Swamy wrote on Twitter, “While in Ayodhya and meeting visitors I learn the feeling of being let down on Ram Temple is very strong. If that decides the vote then we will not cross 180 seats. In the campaign this must be addressed and disappointment overcomes.”
His tweet predicting an electoral disaster for BJP came on the day when nearly 16 crore people are voting on 94 parliamentary seats across 11 states. Incidentally, BJP’s manifesto did not include the construction of Ram Temple in the list of 75 commitments it promised to deliver by 2022.
Swamy’s assessment came after he met the Supreme Court-appointed mediation committee, which is currently holding talks with all stakeholders to seek an amicable resolution of the Ayodhya dispute. The mediation panel is headed by retired Supreme Court judge Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla with the other panels of the member including Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu.
